This week’s Power BIte is the third in a series of videos that present different ways to create new Power BI dataflows, and the results of each approach.
When creating a dataflow by importing a model.json file previously exported from Power BI, the dataflow will have the following characteristics:
|Data ingress path||Ingress via the mashup engine hosted in the Power BI service.|
|Data location||Data stored in the CDM folder defined for the newly created dataflow|
|Data refresh||The dataflow is refreshed based on the schedule and policies defined in the workspace.|

I guarantee it will make as much sense as anything on this blog.
 New videos every Monday morning!
